International visiting fellows are welcome to Çankaya Orthopedics. We regularly accept fellows who would like to broaden their surgical experience as observers. All surgeons are fluent in English. The fellow will be exposed a heavy surgical load of primary & revision hip and knee arthroplasty, complex arthroscopic surgery of the hip, knee, shoulder and ankle. Robotic total hip, total knee and partial knee arthroplasty are routinely performed. Open non-arthroplasty reconstructive knee surgery including osteotomies, patellar instability and multi-ligament reconstructions, reconstructive foot surgery and pediatric spine surgery are other areas of interest. Five fully equipped operating theaters with specialized radiolucent spine surgery and hip arthroscopy tables, state of the art arthroscopic systems and advanced radiological imaging equipment are available. The fellow is expected to attend the journal club on Thursdays and grand rounds on Fridays. The fellowship period may be from 5 days to 2 months.
Meals are available free of charge in the hospital cafeteria. Airport transfers can be arranged free of charge. No other financial support is possible. There are many 3 to 5 star hotels within walking distance of the hospital and accommodation can be reserved with discounted rates depending on the fellow's needs.
